“We had a spectacular dinner on the water with Captain Chip who brought us to the perfect location to enjoy the most beautiful sunset, truly stunning. We all commented that we travel far and wide and did not know how beautiful the Connecticut shoreline sunset can be!”

“Sending you a note of deep appreciation for the extra communication from your entire team as our future son-in-law planned a special outing to propose to our daughter on your boat. Our Captain Chip in particular kept in great contact with us at every step to ensure this very special event was a success!”

“We were looking for a unique experience to celebrate a milestone birthday event with three generations of family during the Covid-19 pandemic period. The brunch boat outing turned out to be the perfect way to celebrate my husband’s 75th birthday with our son, daughter-in-law, and grandchildren. A wonderful day was enjoyed by all! Many thanks!”
